By Association by Carla Durbach

1. ‘Have Courage’ Someone said, and even the
words had knuckles. Courage is such a simple
word to pull apart, thread by thread without
missing the in-between.

2. Cour.age, noun: Strength of Mind to carry on in spite of danger,
from the root word Cor which is Latin for heart,
if Mind = Heart
then Cour. age: Strength of Heart to carry on in spite of danger
~spiteful of danger?
3. Courage sounds like Carnage on the page,
a hint of violence somewhere,
in a lab where a dissected human heart
waits as wannabe surgeons gather the rage
to pick up the blade and slice again

4. Coeur. rage
Coeur is French for heart as in
heart. rage (diastolic or systolic),
red and inflamed like feasting eyes at the
red district where women are consumed,
part by part or perhaps at the Moulin Rouge
where this happens in sophisticated famine

Hello and welcome to my page~ My name is Larisa--a very common Slavic name that was either derived from the Latin word hilaris, meaning "cheerful," or from the Greek city of Larissa, meaning "strong fortress." Born in Ukraine, I emigrated with my family to America when I was still a small child and now make my home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Growing up immersed in two vastly differing cultures led me to have a burning curiosity about people all over the world. Stemming from said curiosity, I have fallen in love with traveling to other countries, meeting new people and delving into their culture, exploring new cities, and of course, dining on the local cuisine! If I cannot escape into a different country, then my next favorite method of adventure is to lose myself in a spectacular book. I enjoy books of all genres--from fiction and novels, to biographies and ethnographies. As long as it captures my fancy and holds me spellbound the entire time, I will burn through the book like a forest fire! Because of this penchant for reading and travel, coupled with my love of deep and mysterious things, I have been often called a dreamer and I find the title suits me. With that being said, I invite you to stay a while, perhaps make yourself a cup of tea and linger through my posts and feel free to comment or share a thought :-)

  1. Wow, I can see why you shared this. It is incredible, I was gripped from the first lines:
    “Have Courage’ Someone said, and even the
words had knuckles”
    It’s so true. Courage takes such strength, it can take more than we have sometimes.
